this year. we've heard also from house speaker john boehner, the republican leader, who said they're open to new ideas, new revenue, but not necessarily by raising taxes. he will speak before the president today and clarify what he meant by new revenue was boosting the economy so people make more money. when you pay your taxes, more money goes to the federal government. a temporary truce not necessarily calming wall street but there is a report from the congressional budget office that says if they don't do something, we could be looking at 9.1% unemployment next year. >> all right, tracie potts, thank you very much. >>> 5:44. mountain view police say more arrests are coming following a first of its kind drug bust in the silicon valley. marla tellez joins us in our newsroom with more on the bust and what really made this one unique. >> reporter: yeah, the drug itself is what made this bust unique. it's called dmt or dimethyltryptamine. we can show you what it looks like. here it is in its final crystal form. it is a hallucinogen naturally found in plants. when it's synthesized in the lab

republican speaker of the house john boehner. what do you expect out of him? >> reporter: you know, he opened the door and said we are interested in talking about new revenue and then had to go back and clarify himself and he will likely do that again today. he did that in an interview but probably will do it in a wider form to say we are not for new taxes. if that's the way president obama and the democrats want to bring more money into this government, we're not going to go for it. >> one last question for you. we talked about this causing a recession. this thelma and louise impact. there could be real impact on the unemployment and economy. >> reporter: if congress does nothing and lets those tax increases happen and don't forget the 2% payroll tax break we ought got this year too, if they let both happen at the beginning of the year plus the massive budget cuts in the government we haven't even talked about that and the effect on the military, if all of that goes into effect, no unemployment benefits extended for people, they think that we could be looking at 9.1% unemployment by this tim

john boehner is standing his ground. >> you know, the american people this week didn't give us a mandate to simply do the simple thing. they elected us to lead. they gave us a mandate to work together to do the best for the country. >> reporter: both parties will have to compromise by the end of the area to avoid the "fiscal cliff." if they don't, the country faces a rollback of tax cuts as well as big cuts to defense and social practices. the main concern about the "fiscal cliff" is it could plunge us back into recession. already, president obama wants to end the tax cuts for the wealthiest americans. but the republicans want the cuts for everyone. so what about mitt romney? he has been on the campaign trail six years now. he says it's probably the end of his political career. he plans to spend more time with his family. he has a lot of family, five sons and 18 grandchildren and he has a 19th one on the way. so dana, i think he has his hands full. >> if he thinks he is going to get some rest, he's not. grace, thank you. >>> four million more hispanics were eligible to vote thi

will be confronting the guy who literally has more color than he has, john boehner. >> it is something, you have this big pressure, this great moment, but also the doubts and stuff going in, the win, of the loss, the fact that you can be out the door. someone says you won again. we have the "fiscal cliff" hanging over you, by the way. so get ready. you have 33 seconds. what's your play? you're going to go to be back in the corner. >> he hasn't thought about that at all. he was focused on whether or not he could justify the four previous years. he was not thinking about the four years forward. period. >> i have a question. just the exhaustion factor with romney and the president. the next day they must wake up and say, can i just go to the caribbean for a week? but you have to go back to work. >> the energy is gone. by the time you end at 8:00 on the night of the election at whatever station you happen to be, the energy leaves you. then you discover you didn't have it anyway. you were operating on adrenaline and what have you. so you have no idea the exhaustion of what you have gone through. the

compromise. already you've seen the president reach out to the other side. john boehner making comments that they also want to work together. but, again, this is the choice that we have been talking about over the last several months. spending cuts, tax increases. >> we should mention that we're also more renewed fears in europe, the greek debt crisis rearing its ugly head. >> absolutely. it's clear that greece cannot pay its bills. now we're thinking, okay, this is another pressure for the u.s. economy. so we're all waiting on some kind of compromise out of washington as well as some stability in europe. but for sure, we'll probably see some volatility going forward. doesn't really mean much, though, long-term. >> i was going to say, let's get some perspective. there was a huge drop after the president's election four years ago. but over the last four years, wall street has been up. >> that's right. over the long-term, you have to look at fundamentals. and the corporate sector right now is very strong. a lot of cash on the balance sheets, longer term earnings should be okay. but over t

of the year. >> on the house side that's clear that boehner is send inging a message to fellow republicans on the house, we've got to make extra steps that we didn't before? >> i think that's true and i think the president has responded by saying i'm not wedded to the idea of tax rate increases. i'll settle for more revenue, if that's the -- if that's what i can get. >> yuf got senyou've got senators reid and mcconnell. >> it was like arranging the peace talk ss. it wasn't easy. >> were they as uncomfortable as they look sitting next to each other? >> yes. >> yeah? >> yes. >> what did you learn from that? >> what can you say? they don't strike me as two guys that are going to sit down in a room over a whiskey and kind of work things out. they're very locked in their way s and they are both political tacticians. that's what they do. >> they are brilliant political tacticians. they are both good at what they do in outmaneuvering one another. they're so politically far apart. why should we expect a compromise bill to happen? >> i think the future of the party of repub

loopholes and lowers tax rates. >> house speaker john boehner gave the republican address this morning, saying shoring up entitlements and reforming the tax code will lead to more jobs and a stronger economy. both sides agree another recession will hit if the nation falls over this so-called fiscal cliff, which is a combination of automatic spending cuts and tax rate increases that are scheduled to kick in at the start of next year. >>> thousands of customers are still without power nearly two weeks after sandy hit, and now their utility might raise their rates. the ceo of con edison has said he is very sorry that some people have gone 12 days without power, but his company plans to hike utility rates for gas, steam, and electricity anyway. many are questioning the timing of such an increase. >> it seems crazy. i know they are probably dealing with an antiquated infrastructure, but i mean, shouldn't they have thought about this maybe down the road a little bit? >> i think it's outrageous, considering what people have gone through. >> if the public service commission approves the rate h

negotiate with speaker boehner, mitch mcconnell, or does he come in, give a set of demands and go hold a press conference? they can, i believe, hammer out -- >> same can the said on the other side, by the way. >> but if the president is willing to do it, the republicans have no choice. i mean, you can't turn down a president who just won re-election if he's sincere and willing to negotiate. >> going to take some bold initiatives which is my segue into your book, okay, because you've written this book about george washington and his bold moves to break the stalemate of the revolutionary war. so much has been written about george washington. what do you want readers to take away from this book that's new? >> well, i think particularly this morning is the launch of an american legacy book tour that calista and i are doing because she has two new children's books out for american history. the first thing is to say to people we have a long history of overcoming adversity. george washington is probably the greatest example of that, and in "victory at yorktown" you see him faced with a strate
